Imagine this thread might mirror the Marufuji one a bit. Clearly a super important NOAH figurehead (though he wasn't really around until after the hottest period for the company), but his work can be divisive. Add in that his current run with Hi69 has been an easy highlight of REBORN and I imagine he will garner some debate.

Can't imagine him not making the final list, but I'm curious where he'll land, particularly vs the other juniors.

Cross posting this in the Ishimori/Suzuki threads.

Remember the SHIODOME JAMBOREE shows in the late 2000s? Yes the shows on the street outside NOAH's TV studios. I really loved them back when they happened because I'm a mark for outdoor wrestling but I rewatched the Suzuki vs. Ishimori match from 2009 I believe and bloody heck that was fantastic for a match where you really wouldn't be under any obligation to work hard. These are two guys that will probably fall right around the same position on my list. Never got a big push in the peak NOAH years but as they became more experience they developed into two of the smoothest juniors in the world. This match wasn't close to the best either had but I think if I wanted to show people a representation of both guys, I'd show them this match.
